as promised....Maple Glazed Brussels Sprouts with Pancetta December 20, 2014 06:00
As promised today I am sharing the delicious recipe for MAPLE GLAZED BRUSSELS SPROUTS WITH PANCETTA - personally I love brussels sprouts but I know they are not a favourite of many people...this recipe that I got fromThe Vancouver Sun may just convert a few ;)
2 1/2 pounds of fresh brussels sprouts
1 TBSP olive oil
2 ounces of pancetta or 3 slices bacon
3 TBSP maple syrup
1 tsp fresh lemon juice
salt and pepper
Bring large pot of salted water to a boil.
Meanwhile, trim the ends from brussels sprouts. Pull away and discard the outermost dark leaves. Add sprouts to boiling water and simmer, uncovered, for 5 to 8 minutes or until tender-crisp; drain in colander. Meanwhile, heat oil in large pot over medium heat; add pancetta and cook for 3 minutes or until just beginning to crisp, stirring frequently.Remove pot from heat; with slotted spoon, remove pancetta and reserve. Drain off all but 1 tablespoon fat from pot. Add maple syrup, lemon juice to pot; stir to mix. Add sprouts; toss to coat. Return pot to heat; cook for 1 minute or until heated through. Sprinkle with reserved pancetta; toss. Add salt and pepper to taste. Transfer sprouts to serving platter.
Hope you enjoy and tomorrow I will share the Cranberry Orange Sauce with Port...mmmm
